The Nobel Peace Prize for President Obama

What the prize says is that the world now believes that America is a force for peace, in stark contrast to the way we have been viewed since the invasion of Iraq. As the struggle with al Qaeda is, above all, a struggle for perceived moral superiority (see the US Army Marine Corp Counterinsurgency Field Manual), this is very good news indeed -- regardless of whether President Obama 'deserved' the award or not.
